Fisher-Price is an American company that produces educational toys for children and infants, headquartered in East Aurora, New York.Fisher-Price has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Mattel since 1993.

Characters and graphics make collecting vintage Fisher-Price toys an easy choice By Bruce Fox With their colorful paper lithography attached to sturdy wooden toys, vintage Fisher-Price toys conjure up nostalgic images for four generations of collectors.

Founded in 1930 by Herman Fisher, Irving Price, Price's illustrator-artist wife Margaret Evans Price, and Helen Schelle, the name Fisher-Price was established by combining two of the three names.

Fisher worked previously in manufacturing, selling and advertising games for a company in Churchville, New York.

Early toys were made of heavy steel parts and ponderosa pine, which resisted splintering and held up well to heavy use.

The details and charm were added with colorful lithographic labels. Price was the first Art Director and designed push-pull toys for the opening line, based on characters from her children's books. (The same toy, in excellent condition, would be worth a considerable amount in today's collectibles market.) In the early 1950s, Fisher-Price identified plastic as a material that could help the company incorporate longer-lasting decorations and brighter colors into its toys.

These toys have been woven into the fabric of the country’s childhood tapestry.

More than 80 years after the production of their first toys, Fisher-Price is still the first choice of parents and grandparents seeking safe, well-made toys for their children and grandchildren.

In 1931, three of the four founders took 16 of their wooden toys to the American International Toy Fair in New York City and they quickly became a success. "Buzzy Bee" was the first Fisher-Price toy to make use of plastic.

By the end of the 1950s, Fisher-Price manufactured 39 toys incorporating plastics.

Most collectors are familiar with the look of vintage Fisher-Price toys with their crisp, colorful paper lithography glued onto Ponderosa pine.

Fisher-Price quickly realized the value of licensing, and in 1935, the company issued the Walt Disney Mickey Mouse Band, featuring Mickey and Pluto.

Fisher-Price has created approximately 5,000 different toys since the early 1930s.
